Re: Need support with my DAW based on Debian Squeeze

You should check out AVLinux which is an audio/video optimized version of Debian Squeeze, might save you a lot of setup time.

Re: M-Audio Firewire Audiophile?

I would think there would be an Ubuntu package for ffado but that would easily checked in the package manager (I don't use Ubuntu, myself). With Ubuntu, I recommend installed kxstudio which has up-to-date audio packages for Ubuntu (but I don't know if has ffado or not). Another option is DreamLinux ...

Re: M-Audio Firewire Audiophile?

Linux firewire support is provided by ffado. Being listed by ffado as "experimental" does not necessarily mean your card will not work, you'll just have to try. Unfortunately, audio hardware support in linux is limited, since few vendors cooperate with linux developers or support driver development....

Re: SSO / Fantasia: Solo instruments fail to load, others work

Are you using the original SSO or the "linuxified one" from OOMidi? I do not know the answer to your problem but I do know the OOMidi people modified SSO to make it linux-friendly (e.g. changed some filenames). Possibly the OOMidi version will work better for you which you can find here: https://git...

Re: Playback the sound from Mic...

If your card has an Alsa driver (which it must since you can use aplay) then you should be able to connect it to Jack. I would think it would be a matter of selecting the alsa driver and the correct hardware interface to use. aplay -l will list your soundcards, though I'm not sure how this output ma...

Re: firewire to usb

I think what you want to do is impossible on several counts: You cannot interconnect firewire/usb, these are completely different buses/protocols. However, You can buy a firewire driver on cardbus if your notebook has a cardbus slot. Also I think there is virtually no chance a ProTools device will w...

Re: Sharing an Ardour project between differing systems

Your question is a bit ambiguous - do you want to use 2 different soundcards on 2 different systems at the same time? I think this is quite difficult and requires use of netjack which I have no experience with. When using 2 soundcards there is the intrinsic problem of keeping the clocks synchronized...

Re: Echo Audiofire 12 compatibility?

I do not have this card but according to the ffado device page this device is fully supported - see http://www.ffado.org/?q=node/71. Also I'd recommend using a audio-oriented linux distribution rather than vanilla ubuntu. I've had good experience with dreamstudio (which is an audio-centric ubuntu ve...

Re: No sfz-engine in LinuxSampler

I can only suggest some kind of sanity test - double check that you really have installed the packages on the non-working computer, use synaptic or other tool to confirm that the libraries/other files really exist on disk and that there are no conflicting versions (like files in both /usr/lib and /u...

Re: Help setting up KXStudio

Well this is sort of a tangential suggestion. You might consider trying AVLinux which does not have pulse at all with which I've been able to be very productive with Linux music applications. However, AVLinux is Debian-based so you cannot install kxstudio on it (at least I do not know how), except f...

Re: No sfz-engine in LinuxSampler

I think you need to compile both libgig and linuxsampler from svn. I don't recall having to change any flags to enable SF2, SFZ support. (I compiled it in the past, so going from memory). By the way AVLinux5 and DreamStudio already have the SVN version of Linuxsampler installed so you get SF2,SFZ ou...

Re: Midi Controller and Jack

You need to run a2jmidid (http://home.gna.org/a2jmidid/) which provides a bridge between alsa midi (ALSA tab) and jack midi (MIDI tab). Start from the command line as "a2jmidid -e" to bridge all hardware midi sources. If you are using Qjackclt you can setup a2jmidid to start up when Jack is started ...

Re: Occasional disconnects from JACK

I need to check for xruns more carefully when these disconnects happen. Since they are infrequent and not reproducible its harder to study systematically. Obviously, increasing latency is always an option, but I do not really like to go above 10 msec for live playing. I tend to suspect that there is...

Occasional disconnects from JACK

I often play keyboards using Pianoteq, linuxsampler and Yoshimi often at the same time. I do this with a latency setting of 5-10 ms since I'm playing live. I have the occasional problem that once and a while (e.g. after 30 minutes playing) one of these programs will disconnect from Jack and I have t...
